One of Walker's priorities in his 2011-13 budget.  Wisconsin reduced state aid designed to equalize funding across school districts by $740 million over the coming two-year budget cycle, a cut of 8 percent. The budget also reduces K–12 funds for services for at-risk children, school nursing, and alternative education.

To be fair we should ignore that North Dakota chart since the oil boom and a small population really jerk the percentages higher.

To still be fair we only have to look at all those other states in comparison to see his success at failure.
